Overview

Description

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, cattlemen and homesteaders tried to make a go of it along the banks of the Strawberry River in the area now occupied by the reservoir and dam. Their story is one of hardship, perseverance and facing near starvation in a very hostile and harsh environment. Winters were hard, long and extremely cold. Their cattle and livestock often froze during these winter months, and the short growing season was hindered by flooding, hailstorms, early frosts and other calamities. They nicknamed the area "Starvation" and it was from this reference that the highway bridge, reservoir, dam and state park received their names.

Geography:

The sprawling waters of Starvation Reservoir provide for fishing and boating in a stark desert landscape. Located four miles northwest of Duchesne on Highway 40,

Recreation:

This park is popular with anglers, boaters, and those using Starvation as a base camp for nearby off-highway vehicle riding. The annual walleye fishing tournament has become a popular fishing event with trophy 10-plus pound fish being caught each year. The scenic beauty of 3,500 acres of park land, many coves, remote beaches and unusually blue water makes this a favorite of boating enthusiasts statewide

Primitive camping is available at serveral locations around the lake, these areas offer no services.
